Orginal comic strip author and illstatour of the boondocks comics

I picked Aaron Mcgruder because he is the most relatable animator in my opinon we btoh grew up in chicago and like hip hop. He is considered a animator pinoerre becasue he is one of the only animators that makes politcal comic strips even though he started as comic strip artist he soon had his show animated in 2005. His comic the boondocks had one of the largest debuts of any comic with it showing up in 160 newspapers nationally.  His comic made controversey right awa
